lyrics

Day Jobs
(featuring Aaron Scott from Attica! Attica!)

Every hour...
Every hour gone...

Everyday it's the same old shit
Go to work,
And get 8 hours closer to death
Wondering "when's it gonna end?
Trading hours for paper –
When I'm dead?"

When I'm dead and gone

Every hour spent
Every hour gone
Every hour of mine
Spent begging for alms

Every hour, every hour's
Too fucking long
It's too fucking long

Punch in, clock out, repeat and rinse
Forty hours a week
Till some shitty pension
Wondering "this is how it ends?"
"Trading hours for paper till I'm dead?"

Now I'm dead and lost
Now I'm dead and gone

(No, I didn't want it to end like this! –
This isn't what I wanted at all! –
Please, I don't want this to be it – )

Noooo!

Every hour spent
Every hour gone
Every hour of mine
Spent begging for alms

Every hour, every hour's
Too fucking long
It's too fucking long

Every hour's
Too fucking long
I want'em back
I want'em all
